That kind of stuff and lots of that information is in general available under Linux as well, think of inotify.
I get you. It would certainly be nice to have something which gathers information in a way that helps troubleshoot. I hate to think of how many people have been put off Linux by advice like "Just dmesg | grep ......... and post the results". I have no problem with it, but I know numerous people who would. It would be nice if it could do more as well, though with the numerous distros, it would be hard to get it to work correctly.

I don't quite understand your comment - I have Opera working fine on Linux.

It is up to each distro what packages they install by default. Linux Mint 18.3 MATE, for example, comes with ntp installed. Which distro-version-flavour are you running?

Have you tried running it in a Windows VM (Virtual Machine) on Linux?

irfanview, for viewing and editing images.
I just want to do basic tasks like: cropping, resizing, converting to other filetypes, rotating, for single images and batch-processing. Maybe apply some filters like color corrections.

In all Linux alternatives I have tried these tasks are more cumbersome or less exact or require more clicks.
Also the menus for navigating folders ("save as" etc) are always more terrible, like you can not copy&paste paths, the windows are fixed size and very small. When you select an area for cropping you can not move it around but have to drag a new selection-rectangle, and so on. Small things like that..

Gwenview in kde with the plug-ins will do much of what you have mentioned. When I need to do something "more serious' I just right click on the image and then click on "open in The Gimp."
To have the plug-ins available it is, unfortunately, necessary to install digiKam.

You might also take a look at XnViewMP.

Edit in: My apologies. I just looked at the latest version of KDE and Gwenview and the long list of plug-ins are no longer available to Gwenview (at least in the version I'm looking at in another window).
However, you can crop, rotate, flip, reduce red eye, resize and one or two other options.

You're kidding, surely? The servers for many of these types of software are generally written and run on Linux. Salesforce runs on Linux. The thing to remember is that most of the dialers are plugins, dependant on the phone system. The autodialers are generally addons as well, as not all people who use CRMs are looking for that functionality.

I really don't know much about CRM programs. I though it was a local program you can install on your desktop. I appreciate the correction. Thanks


PS: I may have confused myself with CRM and a VOIP program.

You should probably head down to https://www.turnkeylinux.org/business-management. They have a SugarCRM disc that you could try out, to see whether the software suits your needs or not?

SugarCRM is used by some fairly large telesales companies, to manage all of their outgoing calls, customer details, and sales. I believe that you can use various plugins to handle the dialing through various PBXs and VOIP programs, though I am not an expert on that side of it. The company that I work for has a digital phone system, that could handle that sort of thing, BUT I know that there is no software that works on Linux to be able to dial. It is worth researching that sort of thing, before paying out for phone systems, if you want to use Linux.

I'd like iTunes or a new third party player that will be compatible with iTunes videos.
